Mandatum Novum: Haikus

[Poetry Request # 9]

Thou shalt not use more
than seventeen syllables
to write a poem.


The sun approaches:
Raise high your arms! Banish shad-
-ows! Set the birds free!


Mandatum novum:
Blessed are they who have found
a new man to date.

nice haikus- its a real gift to be able to make them with such meaning just as they were meant to be written
